In case you’re a person who loves desserts, it is pretty difficult to find a healthy dessert that is low in calories and is delicious at the same time.
The brownies which many people adore and are made in a traditional recipe contain ingredients which are high in inflammatory properties: processed sugar, flour, dairy filled with pasteurized hormone etc. They cause an increase in the levels of the stress hormone e.g. cortisol, but also increase the levels of the blood sugar. The insulin is also increased and that causes mood problems, weight gain and hormonal imbalance.
Here, we’re going to suggest you brownies that contain plenty of healthy fats, fiber and antioxidants!
Their main ingredient is avocado! It contains all of these benefits and many more!
It’s one of the healthiest fruits in the world which is abundant in nutrients. It contains antioxidant phytonutrients, fatty acids, essential amino acids, etc.
Avocados are also filled with oleic acid. This monounsaturated fat increases the Vitamin E (tocopherol), our fat metabolism, as well as the carotenoid antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein. They are all important for decreasing our oxidative stress and improving the health of our cells.
Avocados also contain folate and ionic potassium that help us eliminate any acidic waste from our body and alkalize it.
Take a look at our recipe for avocado brownies free of sugar and grains:
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- ½ a cup of cooked sweet potato
- ½ a cup of mashed avocado (you’ll need ½ an avocado approximately)
- ¼ of a cup of coconut milk
- ½ a cup of chocolate chips (dairy-free)
- ½ a cup of creamy nut butter (tahini, cashew, almond, etc.)
- 3 tablespoons of cacao powder
Baking Time: 20 minutes
The oven should be preheated to 325° F. Add a piece of parchment paper in a loaf pan of regular size. Put some coconut oil over the paper. All of the ingredients should be blended well except for the chocolate chips. When you combine them well, then you should add the chips and put the mixture in the pan.
All of the batter should be leveled across the pan using a spoon. It will be thick and sticky. Bake this for a period of 20 minutes. After that, let it cool down. Then, you can slice it.
